Is it just me or is GIRLS star Adam Driver the hottest heartthrob in Hollywood at the moment?
He’s tall, smart, musical, funny, unusual, fought for his country in the Marine Corps!! in places like Iraq and Afghanistan (insert brave), runs his own not-for-profit business based on increasing theatre audiences, studied at the prestigious Julliard School in New York and is of course a brilliant actor who’s rise to fame in the industry is on the up and up. He is set to appear in a slew of feature films due for release [Spielberg’s Lincoln; Noah Baumbach’s Frances Ha; the Coen Bros’ Inside Llewyn Davis (out in February); Bluebird with John Slattery; and a major-league lead opposite Mia Wasikowska about a writer’s 1,700-mile trek across the deserts of West Australia, called “Tracks”.] Man I wish I knew he was in WA but filming is already complete.
However, what I really consider when thinking of him as an actor, more specifically in his role as Adam on hit HBO series, GIRLS is…. is he so crush-worthy because Writer/ Director/ Actor/ Executive Producer, Lena Dunham invented this sort of man hoping him to be true? Does she wish a man like him could exist? A man who at first was so unlikable, critical and bizarre, suddenly possessing a heart of gold so sweet it could melt the Antarctic? Was he invented (by a woman) to give single women the world over faith? Or is he actually possible? I consider this every time I watch GIRLS and although I do not know the answer, I wish him to be true. LOL!
By the way how 70’s is this shoot. He is wearing labels by the likes of Bottega Veneta, Nike, Lacoste, American Apparel, Aviator Nation, Toddland and Adidas Originals. Love it!
